Should Anderson Silva change weight classes?

If Silva vs. Sonnen 2 showed us anything, it showed us how special of a fighter Anderson Silva really is. His reign of dominance is something we haven't seen in a long time and might not ever see again. And for the second time, Anderson Silva defeated Chael Sonnen, who was by far his biggest threat in the Middleweight Division. Which brings me to my point, should Silva move up to Light Heavyweight or cut down to Welterweight. Sure he might have to vacate his belt but he's gotta be getting bored at the lack of challenge at Middleweight. He's beat Chael Sonnen twice, and has already beat Vitor Belfort and Yushin Okami as well. Who else in the middleweight division is worthy of a title shot? Michael Bisping? Mark Munoz? Brian Stann? Chris Weidman? None of these guys have beaten anybody relevant to get a title shot but they're all in the top 10 in middleweights because the division is that bad. I mean come on, if fans and experts entertained the idea of Anderson Silva vs. Mayhem Miller or Anderson Silva vs. Jake Shields, that tells you right there how lacking the division is. At light heavyweight there would be more competition fighting the likes of Phil Davis, Rashad Evans and Jon Jones. Interesting welterweight fights for Silva would be Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit, Josh Koscheck and of course Georges St. Pierre. This probably won't happen... but should it?
